Pilot for Top Flite Corsair 60 ARF

Looking for a pilot figure for my Top Flite .60 Corsair ARF. I think it suggests a
1/7 scale pilot. Any suggestions for a good Pacific Theater pilot for this
plane?

Thanks

If you need only a bust then I would highly recommend the 1/8 scale Navy pilot offered by RC Group's own MPS86, otherwise known as Matt.

1/8 scale would be too small for a Corsair. Pete's Pilots on Fleabay has a good selection of 1/6 scale WWII pilot busts.

The .60 size Top Flite Corsair is indeed 1/8 scale. The 86 inch span, 50cc version would be 1/6 scale.

Yep, you're right, I forgot we were talking about the 60 size here. Actually, a 1/7 scale pilot would be just about perfect, since it always seems that a slightly larger scale pilot looks better.
